Welcome to Stamps-n-Lingers! I am a Stampin’ Up Independent Demonstrator and I am completely hooked on the company and their product and their mission!
We live in Fayetteville, GA – which, if you’re unfamiliar, is a suburb of Atlanta. We can get from our door to the airport in about 20 minutes (depending on traffic – well, if you know Atlanta, you know that EVERYTHING is dependent on traffic!!). Somehow, we were blessed to find a lovely acreage this close in, and we (my husband, Wayne, and I) share it with two completely rotten miniature panthers (okay – they’re really Domestic Short Hair cats, but…they THINK they’re panthers, so….) – Katy and Leo; one spoiled lab mix – Buck (Buck went to the Rainbow Bridge in June of 2015, but he’ll always be “with” us in our hearts!); and three horses. Our horses consider us their “staff” – which, indeed, we are! Bo, Cerah and Cady pretty much run our lives and dictate our schedules. But, it’s a benign dictatorship, and one I wouldn’t trade for anything!
My life has encompassed a career in the Air Force, a follow-on (and ongoing) military support job, and a stint as a Pampered Chef consultant. I’m an aviator, a teacher, a horse trainer, a would-be-chef, a reluctant housekeeper, a Square-Foot Gardener, a prepper (okay – I own a dehydrator and have managed to grow and dry enough food to last about a week when the zombie apocalypse comes….), a card-maker, a reader-of-novels, and (let’s face it) a couch potato. I’m not one of those people who claim “I just don’t watch TV” or “I just can’t sit around doing nothing” or “I just have to stay busy”. Nope. I like watching “my shows”. Preferably on the DVR without any commercials. So – I didn’t pick crafting to give my overly busy hands something to do, or to take up my evenings. I picked it purely because I love the “stuff” that goes with and into it, and I love the end results that I can make with just some paper and ink and a little bling.
If you’re interested in learning more about Stampin’ Up or about any of their products, drop me a line! I’d be happy to be your Demonstrator!
